The husband of friend of mine—and of the knitting community as Rare Purls on Ravelry—died last night after a long struggle pulmonary fibrosis.
A lung transplant would have saved his life, but my friend is disabled and so could not afford the drugs that would stop his body from rejecting the transplant.
He was denied and given subpar medical care up until his death last night. Now, his wife has a mountain of medical bills, an upcoming funeral to pay for … and only a disability pension to pay it on.
In light of this, a fundraiser has been set up. If you are so inclined, please toss a few dollars her way, or even pass the link on. Thank you.
